Curved glass screen

The Galaxy S3 does not have a curved wrap-around glass screen like the HTC One X and Windows Phone 8X have.

That's a nice HTC design element, and Samsung shouldn't get credit for it- especially with their junky crap.

8X memory

It only comes with 16GB internal and no Mirco SD card slot.

Really, only 16GB and that's it?

Yet the 8S has 4GB internal but does have a Mirco SD card slot.

Wonder why their so skimpy with their high end phone when it comes to memory?
Everything's in the cloud!

(I imagine that's their answer.)

I really like the look of the black and white 8S.

Makes me wonder why more companies don't mix the two.

I have to agree on the brand confusion

It's already a pain to sell the iPhone 4 or 4S if someone wants the "iPhone 4g" or "two of the iPhone 4s"... Naming a phone after the OS it's running just seems like a bad idea in general.
According to the name these phones will not be able to run windows 9 when it comes out. That is if Microsoft starts doing a early cycle like everyone else, which is highly doubtful. It seems like Microsoft will start a 2 to 3 year OS cycle.

Look significantly nicer than

The Samsung ATIV and even Lumia 920.

HTC actually took inspiration to the software and it seems like a much more cohesive device. The Samsung still has the nasty chinese knockoff look (not to mention worst-class feeling/looking/wearing materials) , and the Lumia feels a bit off with its bezel sizes and overall thickness.
